The setting of the resort is beautiful. The room was dirty, beginning with the dirt ring in the bathtub that was left by house keeping. We asked 3 times for the bathroom to be cleaned to no avail. Mold and black hair (we are blondes) is just the beginning. The room darking drapes were available on half the large window.... More

We booked the Sun Island Resort and Spa almost 2 weeks ago through Expedia. We didn't get any confirmation from the resort, which was a worry as we needed to book transfers at least 72 hours in advance. We waited patiently for 1 week (and with just 6 days before we were due to arrive) we contacted the resort to... More

The Sun Island Resort is a perfect island for both honeymooners and family. It has amazing excursions planned for every day of the week for which anybody can sign up. The turquoise blue water enough to take your breath away and makes snorkeling experience awesome. Rooms are nice and comfortable. However, a little interior upgrade would be amazing to have....

We stayed at Sun Island Resort for 4N, 2N in Superior Beach Bunglow and other 2 in Water Bunglow. From Male to reach to the resort you need to take a domestic flight. You get the aerial view of Maldives islands from the flight which is really amazing. Once you reach the destination domestic airport, then you have a small... More
